It is unbelievably sad to hear that my favorite drummer of all time, Neil Peart, has left us. Very hard to find words to properly express the level of inspiration & influence he had on so so many musicians. He will forever remain at the top of my list. Farewell to a true king. pic.twitter.com/A9QkSWg2f9
Neil Peart Is single-handedly the reason I became a musician back in 1978 after hearing “all the worlds a stage” @rushtheband has been my favorite band since, so to hear that Neil passed away today is absolutely devastating to me. I’m sad beyond words……………… pic.twitter.com/PPcjzJNyXB
At the end of a crazy @rockhall night in 2013 where @rushtheband & @PublicEnemyFTP were inducted. It was just myself & Neil PEart alone talkin & laughing low in relief the long night was over-a small table backstage sharing a unique moment without much word. Rest in Beats my man
